All these new pictures are wonderful! Archives really are a treasure box. I wish somebody looted it! Then again like this we can always be looking for more.

I agree! It's kind of nice when they trickle out like this...keeps us coming back and eager for more. Sort of like winning the 'thousand bucks a week for life' style lottery rather than the who lump some at once :-)

I know that the 1st and the 3rd picture are well known but I thought it would be nice to see the whole set of pictures :)
The 2nd, 4th and 5th picture were new to me :

Ive seen the third one labeled as at Tsarskoe Selo... I think either the CP or AP is in the background... Are all the pictures taken around the same location?

Because the photos are from Germany, I wonder if there is Ernie's  wife with them on one of their Hesse aunts.Also it looks like n has her wig  so this may be 1913. Thanks again. It is indeed great to see a set

I have just seen this amazing new picture of the four girls on Facebook. I don't know if it has been posted anywhere else before but it is certainly new to me:

For me it is...great stuff indeed!

I'm thinking around 1910/11? Anyone know exactly what game they are playing?

Could they be making white flowers for white flower day? (I think the photo was taken in the Mauve Boudoir tho)
I think I read somewhere they (OTMA and Alix) would do hand work to sell for charities... could they be making something opposed to playing something?

They're decorating Easter eggs. I have this photo in a Russian book about Faberge. I'm not at home this weekend, but when I get back I'll check and see if they give a date in the caption. Offhand I'd also guess 1910.

Love the one Sara posted especially.

This is going to sound crazy, but I'm pretty sure I recognize those shoes.
